We expect to have around 150 teams out on the day – together, we’ll be able to get our message across to thousands of voters. Thank you for being part of the campaign.

Thanks, and please make sure you keep in touch. Every single conversation we have makes a difference.
Happy campaigning!

Anti-fracking? From Yorkshire? Let’s make summer plans | The Victoria Hotel Leeds | Tuesday, 23. May 2017
Local people in Lancashire have been dauntlessly resisting the fracking industry for over 6 years. Let’s show them that Yorkshire folk have got their backs. No fracking here, no fracking there, no fracking anywhere!
Cuadrilla are trying to force through the first commercial fracking in the UK. They’re preparing to drill at Preston New Road near Blackpool. Stopping the frackers there will deal a critical blow to the industry and send a strong signal to investors.
This summer, there are audacious plans for groups from across the country to ramp up the resistance. Throughout July, hundreds of people from across the UK will join the ongoing protests against fracking in Lancashire.
— AN ACTION A DAY KEEPS THE FRACKERS AWAY —
Come along to meet like minded people, hear first hand stories of actions against the fracking industry, discuss the strategic importance of this climate justice front line and make plans for the summer…
We’ll be sticking around for a drink after, so please feel invited to join us!
